Main sessions were devoted to diagnosis and treatment of different types of ophthalmopathology: intraocular tumours, neovascularisation in age-related macular degeneration, inflammatory eye diseases, wet macular degeneration, retinal vein occlusion, proliferative vitreoretinopathy and rhegmatogenous retinal detachment, diabetic retinopathy. Such issues as imaging of eye fundus and innovative technologies of vitreoretinal surgery were discussed.

Oral report «Features of distribution of macular pigment in diabetic macular edema» read by R. Faizrakhmanov aroused great interest and debate about the value of the study of macular pigment in the pathology of the central retina, which underlines the fundamental aspects presented in the report.

On September 9, 2016 at the Kreissig lecture E. Chew (USA) presented his lecture «Nutrition, genes and age-related macular degeneration: what have we learned from the trials».
